Aileen Stanley broke into Broadway in 1920 and remained a very popular stage performer throughout that decade. She became so well-known as a recording artist that she was sometimes billed as "The Phonograph Girl". In the early 1930s she moved to England, where she continued to record for several more years. "All By Myself" was recorded on May 16, 1921. From the original 78rpm disk.

a real gem!
superior performance of an Irving Berlin song.
not to be confused with the power ballad of the same name, this memorable tune isn't necessarily recognized as a "standard" per se, but remains a great relic from the dawn of recorded music.
